I can not mount my usb pen drive in the yoper distro. for thoughs of u who are fimilar with yoper, it does not show up in the devices menu and when i open yoper control panel and click on the USB icon a window pops up and says the file or folder file:/mnt/usb does not exist. When i plug in the pen drive in yoper lags a little and the light stays flashing on the drive, so i know yoper detects it. Which is good. Is there some sort of command that i can use to access it? i am using the newest stable version of yoper. thanks for the help.

Open a root terminal, and run "tail -f /var/log/messages" to see what the kernel has to say about it. It should tell you which device it is created as (/dev/sda probably).

You can then mount it using "mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb" (you need to create a directory called /mnt/usb firt if it isnt there already though). sad1 is the first partition on sda - So if it doesnt become /dev/sda you will have to modify the command a bit.
